MAHJONG

The Group Co-ordinator is Maggi. Sheils 758414

This is a House Group that meets every Thursday at 2.00p.m.

Mahjong is one of the most popular U3A groups run across the country. It is a game that originated in China, commonly played by four players. Similar to the Western card game rummy, mahjong is a game of skill, strategy and calculation and involves a certain degree of chance.
One of the myths of the origin of mahjong suggests that Confucius, the Chinese philosopher, developed the game in about 500 BC. The myth also claims that Confucius was fond of birds, which would explain the name "mahjong" (maque 麻雀 = sparrow).
